I have come to the conclusion that I think too much. So much so that it often debilitates me. In fact as I am sitting down to write this blog, I said to Sean “I need a process.” He laughed because he knows how I am. I often have fantastic ideas but never get around to starting them or even worse, I start and don’t finish. There I said it. When this was brought to my attention recently I retaliated with a horrible statement that I won’t even write. That’s because what we resist persists.
One of the things I have often talked about wanting to do, is to go to Africa with the AYP. When I mentioned this a couple of years ago, my fantastic husband in his very militant forthright fashion replied “make it happen.” Fast forward to now. With the opening of Marin Power Yoga and the presence of such amazing people in my life, I am making it happen. Yes, I need support. But that’s okay because that is why we have community. We are doing this together. When I stood in the room teaching the AYP jam, for a moment it felt surreal. I am making it happen! We are making it happen!
Again, this is only the beginning, there is much more that needs to be done. However, instead of perceiving it as work, I am choosing to call it fun. Something that I want to do. A choice. An opportunity to create community while we work together to make the world a better place. I can’t even begin to think of something that would rather do.
We have created an initial goal of raising $10,000 to support Africa Yoga Project! There are a few easy ways you can help me! Stop in to MPY and buy a Sweatshirt or a T-Shirt! The sweatshirts are $45 and the T’s are $30…the proceeds are donated to AYP!!! Check out the bracelets at the front desk, they are awesome and the proceeds are donated to AYP!

Thank you all for helping make this happen!
